COURIER NEWS PAOK TSSXf War on 'Hoppers Slacks in West Fight Temporarily Halted; Farmers Told Battle Far from Over By Ben Funk DENVER, July 8. <AP>—The air w»r on grasshoppers in Wyoming and Montana has "temporarily" JWt down the threat of a plague in jfK grain belt. Jim R. Button, chief of the VJ&. Grasshopper Control Division, emphasized the word "temporary" ii> an interview yesterday on the results of an airplane poison-spreading campaign against the hungry insects in those states, The battle Isn't over, he says, not by a long shot. If the Wyoming-Montana 'hopper armies had been left alone, nutton declared, they would have made the'current Nevada battalions look silly. Only Primary Area Sprayed They would have been Hilly as tough as the locusts swarms that descended on the grain belt in the 30's to lay waste to millions of acres of cropland all the way from Can- ad.i to Te\as. "We have killed a whale of a lot of grasshoppers and saved lots of range grass," Dutton said. "But the million and a half acres we sprayed represent only the primary danger area. "Outside that area are millions of acres of infested taml on which the 'hoppers are multiplying at a terrific rate." ! On these lands, he said, many farmers and ranchers are attack- i:ig grasshoppers at their own expense, some of them luing planes. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is furnishing supervision and JB some cases poison bran but Dut- Wn thir.ks a full scale drive like the one now Hearing completion in a limited area is going to be necessary to end the grasshopper menace for good. The USDA started the aedal campaign against 'hoppers with a *1.000.<XX> appropriation. Congress, prodded by farmers and ranchers, now is considering another, larger emergency fund to carry the campaign to a successful conclusion.
